Keep Austin Canes Weird

Check out Kevin and Dani in our new tshirts!

If you’d still like to order a shirt, email soon. We’ll place another order in ~January.

The second set of tshirts are $15 each (because we used our alumni funds on the first order). The ~$3 extra over the cost will cover shipping and will go toward our scholarship donation in the spring.

All-ACC picnic: April 14th

ACC Alumni Picnic and Fundraiser
Saturday, April 14th, 11:00am-3:00pm
2225 Andrew Zilker Rd
Austin, TX 78746

Please join the Austin alumni chapters of ACC schools on Saturday, April 14th, for a day in the park. We have reserved a pavilion in Zilker Park here that comes with plenty of parking, a gated play areas, and tons of space for a number of different activities and games. We’ll be setting up cornhole (bean-bag toss), ladder golf, bocce, etc. for everyone to enjoy and compete against other schools. This event will be great for alumni of all ages and our families. This will be a great mix of both young and wise alumni, both new to the area and locals.

We will also be raising money for Austin Sunshine Camps (description below) so this is a great chance to help raise money and awareness for an excellent program benefiting Austin youth.

There will be limited food provided (basically just A LOT hot dogs) so we are asking that everyone contribute a dish or drink of your choosing to the pot.

So to recap:

Austin YMBL Sunshine Camps was started in 1928 by the Young Men’s Business League (YMBL) of Austin. The YMBL set out to positively affect the lives of youth living below the poverty line. We serve more than 850 youth each year from Bastrop, Hayes, Travis and Williamson Counties. Since 1928, ASC has served 44,500 campers and students in Central Texas. The students and families served by ASC are living below the poverty line (defined as a family of four with an annual income of $22,050). All of our programs are completely free of charge to participants. Austin Sunshine Camps is best known for our namesake programs, the camps at Zilker Park and Lake Travis.
